Among specific topics are multiple mechanisms causing ventricular tachycardia, monophasic action potential recordings in atrial fibrillation and the role of repolarization alternans, mapping and catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias in ischemic and scar-related substrates, the role of cardiac computed tomography imaging to guide catheter ablation of arrhythmias in complex cardiac morphologies, and epicardial mapping of longstanding persistent atrial fibrillation.

When asked if he thought he could transform himself into a Vinnie Jones-style action man, he said that one shouldn't undervalue his action potential.
The acoustic threshold measured 1 hour after acoustic trauma was elevated in the control group to 70-90 dB in the higher frequencies of the compound action potential audiogram, with a maximum threshold elevation ranging between 12 and 16 kHz.
Nerve cells communicate by sending electrical signals called action potentials down long fibers called axons, which are wrapped in an insulating substance called myelin.
The proposed mechanism for J wave development is cold-induced accentuation of the action potential of M and epicardial cells, creating the J wave.
Wikswo & van Egeraat (1991) measured the action current associated with a propagating action potential along a squid giant axon using the same method described for the frog sciatic nerve bundle, and obtained I = 6 [micro]A.
In the RA group, electrophysiologically diagnosed neuropathy was detected in 20 (36%) patients: 3 (5%) had sensorimotor polyneuropathy, 7 (13%) had low sural sensory CV or absence of sensory action potentials (SAP), 2 (4%) had carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), 6 (11%) had low amplitude peroneal compound muscle action potentials, 1 (2%) had low amplitude peroneal compound muscle action potential and low ulnar sensory nerve conduction, and 1 (2%) had low sural and ulnar sensory nerve conduction.
